You ask "How often should a septic tank be pumped?"
Ive heard septic suckers say one should do it like at least yearly (they just may have a vested interest ya think lol???)
Ive heard others say NOT UNLESS THEY ARE CAUSING A PROBLEM
I SAY it sorta depends on the use (how many in family),,,,,,,,how good a drain field you have and how well it perks,,,,,,,,,how much grease n soap (kitchen sink) and how much lint (clothes washer) you out in it
So I say the answer is it DEPENDS and is likely somewhere in the middle of the 2 above extremes, BUT IM NOT A PLUMBER

|You want to pump it just before there is a problem. Once there is a problem, means you let some solids go down the leach lines and smeared them full. |
Thing is every household is different, some need it yearly, some can go 30 years.
Solids will build up in a tank, dirt particles, bits of bone, fiber. So on.
Just depends how you use it.
